2.8" Prone + Enrolled Morocops Trilobites - Cool Piece

This is a really cool piece featuring two, naturally associated Morocops (Barrandeops) trilobites. One is mostly prone and 2.8" long and the other is enrolled but would have been about 2.2" long. Very nice detail and preparation.

Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k currently described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left an excellent fossil record.
